Abstract

The ARCHIchild toolkit, designed by a team of architecture students from Norwich University of the Arts (NUA), has been developed through collaboration with the Norfolk Association of Architects (NAA) and
funded by Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).
Primarily a learning resource, it comprises a series of activities that can
be delivered by teachers and educators. The toolkit will facilitate a project based learning approach and address specific curriculum areas from a range of key stages. Some of the activities are designed in a flexible way and can be adjusted accordingly to the age group and learning outcomes. Through awareness and exploration of architecture, young people of all ages will be encouraged to understand the built environment in an integrated way and identify the advantages of good design. One of the main aims of this document is to raise young people’s awareness of architecture and engagement with the built environment.
